About the National NGO Coalition

Seeking more effective cooperation in the NGO sector and the consolidation of the influence of organisations working in various fields, the Non-Governmental Organisations’ Support and Information Centre initiated the establishment of the National NGO Coalition.

In December 2009, 12 Lithuanian NGO umbrella associations signed an agreement for the foundation of such a coalition and pledged to collaborate in the representation of NGO sector interests in governmental institutions. The coalition's work is coordinated by the Non-Governmental Organisations’ Support and Information Centre.

Other NGO umbrella associations operating in various public policy fields can also join the National NGO Coalition. The umbrella association or informal network of NGOs must inform the Coalition coordinator in writing about such decision.
More information about the National NGO Coalition is available in the NGO Coalition/Documents section.
